Addition of subspaces

  1. Jan 26, 2009 #1
    What exactly is the "addition of subspaces?" It is obviously not the same as the "union of subspaces," since the union of subspaces A and B in V is a subspace of V only if A is contained in B (or B is contained in A).

    You should probably only ask the same question in one place.

    It probably refers to the direct sum of two vector spaces. Link.
